Re: appearance on monitor is reddish in appearance
Depending on your monitor settings, you should putt all 3 colors on either 0 or 50. whichever is in the middle of the spectrum in your settings. However, when I've seen this problem on monitors, it's been a problem with the cable. Sometimes the cable is tilted, meaning some of the pins aren't connecting. In other cases, missing or bent pins can cause this too. So try to check out both ends of the video cable and adjust it accordingly.

The issue is due to bad caps not holding the charge enough. Open the LCD and look for bad caps and replace as necessary. The fix should not exceed 20 bucks in parts. Make sure you allocate at least 1.5 hrs and a large clean table to open your lcd.
Check the video connection cable. Unplug it from monitor and computer, and fix it again, completely screwing it. When there is poor color, try to move/slowly pull the cable on both sides.
The best solution to try is to install a completely new video cable.
Hope it helps.
It can be that it is nothing getting all the color signal from the PC, I would check all the pins at both ends of the cable first, or try it with another PC to narrow down the problem.
Please post back what you find, we do not want to open it up unless we have too, and if it is the monitor, the only way to fix it will be replacing the logic board (the board that the video cable is plugged into).
Have you loaded the drivers which came with the monitor. This will probably allow you to change the settings.
Right click on an area of your desktop and choose properties. Look at the monitor and make sure the resolution is set to the recommended level possibily between 60 or 75 dependant on the model. Also you can get to the display card settings here and change them to suit. Dont get carried away or you can make it so that you cant see whats on the screen at all to be able to change it. Could also be that your monitor is faulty. Check with your manufacturer. It its an old telly type monitor maybe one of the "guns" have gone so you dont get the right colour mix of red green and blue. If this is the case you will need to get a new screen.
The first thing to do is set the monitor resolution, color depth and monitor refresh rate to what you want then adjust the monitor accordingly.
Adjust resolution, color depth and refresh rate for Windows 2000/XP:
-Right click any clear spot on your desktop and select properties from the menu that appears.
-From the Display Properties box that appears click on the Settings tab.
-In the screen resolution section (lower left corner) experiment with the resolutions and see what you like.
-The color quality box should be set to the highest (most colors) color setting listed.
-Click on the advanced button in the lower right corner.
-In the next window click on the monitor tab.
-Typically you would want to set it at 70 Hertz or better. The higher the setting the less flicker you will notice, however, there is always a trade off. I would start with 70 Hertz and gradually move up; at some point your monitor will reach a setting it can?t support. If the screen blanks out Windows will reset back to the previous settings as long as you don?t hit any keys.
-click the OK button twice.
